From the HISTORY file:

Version 1.7.2

  • Added a note about 'Id' being obsolete to the description of cDevice::PlayAudio().
  • Switched to the new S2API driver API, which was decided to become the official

    from to
    the driver source, because the S2API doesn't provide a way of telling whether a
    device can handle DVB-S2 transponders.
  • The cDvbTuner::IsTunedTo() function now also checks the symbol rate in case of
    DVB-S and DVB-C.
  • Improved handling PES video packets with zero length when converting from TS to PES.
